Transparency and flow are unique to watercolor. It is a balancing act between spontaneity and control.  Delve deeper into the qualities and techniques that make a watercolor a watercolor.

New lessons on Color and layering will allow you to see and use watercolor in fresh and new ways. Stretch your perception of how you see, think about and interpret color.

Students will work on any subject(s) of their choosing and will re-imagine it through a study of color juxtapositions, layering, light and shadow.

Expand what you know through individual mentoring keyed to your specific needs.

Printmaking Sampler with Kate Hanlon

Printmaking Sampler

MEDIUM: PRINTMAKING

ALL LEVELS

Kate Hanlon

The aim of this fun class is to introduce students to a variety of printmaking methods that can be used as a vehicle to express and communicate ideas in different ways.  Each class will introduce a different technique: drypoint, collagraph, linocut, woodcut and monotype, and students will have an opportunity to combine methods and explore creative ink applications to achieve unique variations.  Kate will show examples, both historical and contemporary, to stir imaginations.  Students will become comfortable and familiar with these new techniques and with printing on our new press. (This class will include a materials fee directly paid to the instructor.)

Colorful specimen trees, Walden Pond and the surrounding woodlands, sweeping marshes, peaceful riverside scenes, Concord and the charming downtown area offer many wonderful locations to paint. Caleb will guide you on how to choose your own spring palette and how to develop a composition that has good values and strong design, with contrast and color harmony. Each class will begin with a demonstration, leaving plenty of time for painting and individual instruction. A constructive group critique will be offered at the end of the class.

Long Draw and Paint (Figure in Space and Still Life) with Ron Krouk

Long Draw and Paint (Figure in Space and Still Life)
MEDIUM: CHARCOAL and OIL or ACRYLICS

ALL LEVELS WELCOME
Ron Krouk

This class explores the linkages between drawing and painting. The drawing time is focused on three skills which directly impact painting and reward continued practice: gesture, contour and straight lines. Through these, we will explore composition, proportion, shape, value, space and mark-making as they apply to painting in oil or acrylic. Paintings will be of varying duration and the focus will always be on getting the big things right before getting seduced by detail and on correct color and value rather than on “effects.” The class benefits from including people at all levels of experience.
(There will be 3 or 4 classes with a model requiring an additional fee split among the class and paid directly to the instructor.)

The Unique Image:
Drawing and Painting with Acrylics

MEDIUM: ACRYLICS

Kathy Deflice-Secor

Explore your imagination and strengthen your mark making.  Push beyond what you know and tap into your intuitive nature.  Whether your work is abstract or representational, using your intuitive hand while responding to materials will bring out spontaneity and a different way to approach your work.  The surface you work on can influence the outcome.  Paper allows for a fresh and direct way of working.  Canvas and panel provide more support for richer application of materials.  This class will include working on a combination of surfaces to widen and enhance the variety of your work.
In this class, Kathy will assist you to thoughtfully explore your unique imagery.  During each session there will be exercises to flex your imagination and mark-making along with demonstrations and critiques.
